With non-essential businesses opening up for curbside pick-up, it leaves us wondering when our favourite chain restaurants like Tim Hortons will be able to reopen dining areas. Restaurant Brands International, the owner of Tim Hortons, Burger King, and Popeyes has revealed its plan for what that might look like.
In an open letter, from its CEO Jose Cil, the company shares that it’s shifting “from crisis mode to recovery mode.”
For the last eight weeks, the company’s restaurants have been complying with public health guidelines by serving customers through delivery, drive-thru, and mobile channels. Now that things are changing and it’s looking like things are heading in a positive direction, it’s time to start looking at what these quick-service restaurants will look like when they reopen to customers.
The letter reads, “We have fully embraced the notion that parts of our restaurants need to change – certainly, for the foreseeable future and possibly forever.”
RBI has mandated that all employees must wear masks and gloves in the short-term but now it’s brand and operations teams are now looking into more comfortable and reusable masks that might become part of its standard uniform.
When these restaurants open up, customers will notice tabletop signage letting them know which seats are available and which are reserved to preserve social distancing.
Tables and chairs will be sanitized after each use, with hand sanitizer available for guests as well and self-serve offerings like extra condiments will be moved behind the counter, too.
